This Semester's Projects
Each semester, our Client Teams work with industry partners to build products ranging from full stack web development to machine learning. Meanwhile, our Mentored Team focuses on learning the essentials of software development and simultaneously develops an internal tool for CodeBase or a non-profit organization.

App Development
With Upstream, we performed end-to-end design and development of a website to match cancer patients with clinical trials.
Project Structure
Both our Client and Mentored Projects follow a similar development timeline over the course of a semester. Here's a rough weekly breakdown of what they might look like.
Week 0 - Planning
Each project team consists of 6-8 Project Developers and 2 Project Managers. These PMs serve as the main point of contact between the team and the client. Before the semester even begins, PMs already have met with clients and extensively discussed project goals, technical scope, and deliverable requirements.
Week 1 - Formation
Project Developers are matched onto their semester projects. They meet their PMs and fellow developers, get to know each other, and dive into the development process.

Week 6 - Mid-Semester Deliverable
Around the halfway point, our teams head over to our Client offices and present an MVP deliverable of the final product. We recap progress so far, outline the next steps, and graciously accept any constructive feedback.

Week 12 - Final Deliverable
Right before finals week, our Projects wrap up with a second, final visit to the Client offices. We present a final, polished version of our product along with the necessary documentation and tooling for our Clients to take full ownership of the product moving forward.
